9:02 pm
confront each other it again in the early hours of monday as protesters tried to block the road leading to the square they want a change of government and accuse the current one of corruption a cool had gone out to protesters to block main roads in baghdad a major highways in the south cutting off access. police use live ammunition and fight a gas in attempt to disperse the crowds in the capital but a standoff sued lost in several i was angry iraqis determined to get the message across. the idea isn't just blocking the roads all the people here often straighted so we make noise here to make sure that we are heard about to show them the days do you want to move for months no one has listened to our demands they're killing us it's just bloodshed. throughout the day took took 3 wheelers have been ferrying take us victims to makeshift hospitals like this one. i went to tyrone square in baghdad and the people wanted me to help them i was also attacked
9:03 pm
by tear gas i fell down the security forces have been using tear gas and live ammunition to iraq's national security council has authorized the arrest of protesters but so far that's had little impact on the movement there wasn't the same level of violence elsewhere in the country as the wars in baghdad and the roadblocks in the south the protest is considered a success the real question for the protest movement is where do you go from here once you started blocking off roads in the south of the country effectively cutting off the self from the rest of the country where do you escalate your demands of being listened to and that's really i'm going the protest movement now it really remains to be seen whether the blockade of the roads is going to work and whether the government will listen as a result of it. al-jazeera baghdad and i speak to one of our correspondents in baghdad now been jabot osama it's night time now just bring us up to speed with the latest for us as far as casualties after today's demonstrations. hopefully until
9:04 pm
a few hours ago we saw protests defiance. completely under to all of the violence we saw those 3 wheelers pulling bins to words the front lines as they call them they've set up barricades and they're telling everyone that they're not going to leave until their demands are met this is the 1st night that we're seeing them coming out in force again after weeks of. protests especially after the tensions flared up between the united states and iran and ahead of a planned rally by government parties as well protestors have been facing tear gas rubber coated bullets and some have been saying that live missions of be used through the day we've been they've been sending us videos graphic videos of the wounds of how people have been killed how people have been wounded at these 2 bodies we've seen be solve one funeral happening in their own square as we were
9:05 pm
there and protesters are saying that the government is back to its tactics as it was using before but it is not going to make them stop one protesters one protester told us that he has been coming here since october the 1st and he's been going to continue to come there until the government either meets the protesters demands which are provide them jobs better facilities health care make sure that the people who ruling them have integrity and honesty and nobody who is be who will be nominated by the government should be part of the political elite because they think everybody who's part of the iraqi government and opposition parties is corrupt and the protesters are some have been trying to block roads to the south what impact is that having and what's likely to happen next given the government hasn't responded to the protests as demands. well at least 9 people have been arrested for doing just that in baghdad 14 policemen have been injured so it has been a very tough day for all sides because the protesters said that they are going to
9:06 pm
make sure that the government hears them and it is evident that the people living in not just baghdad but across the country have felt the same size and scale of these protests specially in the south where many areas there was a provincial day off people could not go to work many people had been stranded for hours on these highways which will go out and that is that is what the protesters want to tell the government that they are one the government to take notice they say the government has been procrastination in the gulf they did manage to remove the government right now iraq is being ruled by an interim government but they say that is not enough it has been weeks since they have heard the government come up with names that would they want and they have been rejecting the names that the government has been putting forward it is going by the looks of it going to escalate protests have been calling others to come and join them telling people who were there that they will not be deterred by this they're 'd going to hold their
9:07 pm
positions to make sure that 480 or people who died and more than 25000 people who have been wounded did not do all of that and bring thank you for that update osama bin javid life for a sane baghdad. in other world news u.s. president defense team says impeachment case against him is flimsy and that the whole process has been rigged they're laying out their arguments on the eve of his trial beginning in the u.s. senate on tuesday the democratic party controlled house of representatives approved 2 articles of impeachment against month he's accused of abusing the power of his office by trying to force ukraine's leader to investigate a political rival and also of obstructing congress's investigation as house correspondent kimberly live in washington for a 2nd tell us more about the president's defense team's arguments for us. yes sources close to the president's defense team and working with the president's
9:08 pm
defense team of told al-jazeera that essentially they feel that this is a charade that this is only the 1st time that the president will have the opportunity to present his case in the senate trial which isn't entirely true there were some opportunities though not many in the house inquiry still this is something that the argument is that is being presented by the legal defense team of the president the other big news to come out of that briefing that was held with reporters in the last hour or so with that the argument that democrats have been making than they expect to make towards the president in the senate trial that essentially he abused his power when he asked the the leader of ukraine the lenski to look into interference in the 2016 u.s. election they say this was not an abuse of power because it was looking into the past not looking towards the 2020 u.s. election so these are some of the arguments as part of a broader attack strategy that we expect from the defense team for president trump
9:09 pm
they say the charges are invalid that he has committed no crime and essentially when it comes to calling of witnesses they also say that the president's likely to invoke executive privilege particularly when it comes to the former national security adviser john bolton and that would end up putting this into the courts which would take a very long time to resolve so it's already looking potentially messy democrats for their part say look at this is a concern he is abused his presidential powers and well this is not expressly outlined in the u.s. constitution the spirit of the u.s. constitution certainly makes this amount to high crimes and misdemeanors so the trial begins tomorrow in the senate tomorrow tuesday how was it going to look like what are we expecting to happen. we're expecting that this is going to run every day except sunday we're expecting that the arguments could run for 6 hours a day which is going to make this rather unwieldy at times we also know that the
9:10 pm
house managers the 7 house managers from the house of representatives will be acting like the prosecutors in this case they're working out who will argue which aspects of the case they've just done their walk through through the senate mapping out where they will stand and they're also pushing for new evidence because they say since the house inquiry new evidence has come to light including the pronouncement by the government accountability office that that withholding of military aid by the trumpet ministration to your crane was illegal so they are pushing very hard for all of these aspects to be argued as well as new witnesses but in terms of the rules of how this will be conductive we won't know until that's voted on on tuesday when this essentially all kicks off and more looking forward to it of course can be held at live for us in washington d.c. . and the spread of a new virus appears to be accelerating in asia china's helpful forty's have not confirmed that this been human to human transmission the corona virus has killed 3

9:13 pm
believe the government to would give us past and accurate information i think they're more worried than the public they were have to figure out how to deal with it so i'm not worried but the outbreak is bringing back an easing memories of the 2003 sauce outbreak which killed almost 800 people worldwide and left more than 8000 sick authorities initially withheld information about the epidemic leading some to question the chinese government's transparency around the new virus british researchers say they could be as many as 7100 cases the world health organization has sent a research team to work on for us to fully otherwise the extent of human to human transmission we need to collect more and more information so this is obviously the new diseases and so many things we still don't know videos are circulating on chinese social media of passengers being tested on flights for move on but the government has appealed to the public to remain calm 8 people were arrested earlier this month for spreading rumors about the outbreak online but preventing the spread

9:16 pm
a new force in the un symbolical i hope that these will be ready for the next footing of fish council but in the meantime we have to pass from a truce. to a real cease fire. in an exclusive interview with al jazeera the leader of libya's un recognized government says he is hope for the conference marks a real opportunity for progress towards peace. because we are cautiously optimistic about the berlin summit simply because we have had previous meetings and understandings but we were not met by a genuine political partner on the contrary we were met with malice and treachery along the way now all have come to realize that there is no military solution to the crisis in libya despite the fact that haftar and his forces do not believe in diplomacy nor
9:17 pm
a political process we hope that half stars allies and supporters have also come to this conclusion and would recalculate their moves in order to revive this political process the berlin solution has introduced 3 main courses of action military political and economic progress must be achieved on all these 3 fronts simultaneously in order to arrive to a comprehensive solution in libya the core problem is the negative intervention by foreign forces with them and live to our correspondent in tripoli. the warring sides in libya not as optimistic in it seems as world leaders about a political settlement. will definitely fully because the question now is whether or not these rival leaders can really rein in the armed groups and their local allies on the ground because we have been noticing sporadic fighting over the past couple of days by both. fighting or
9:18 pm
warring factions on the ground and the government military sources say that they have 3 covered 6 dead the bodies of civilian victims they say that they were killed by house to his forces you know the citadel neighborhood in southern tripoli but now as they're. a conference conclusions. i've been trying to pave the way for a peaceful settlement to this conflict military commanders on the ground say that or at least seem to be determined to continue fighting here in tripoli n.o.c. the national oil corporation has declared what is called a source merger or that's a kind of procedure to protect itself against any legal obligations given the fact that it has long time contracts with their international oil companies that this step has been taken by the n.o.c.
9:19 pm
after house to us forces bloop blockaded the major oil terminals in the east of the country and now here in the west in the camp led by prime minister saraj the idea is that we have to do is using this as a tool to put pressure on the government of national called to have to says to the distribute the oil revenues. seems to be totally against this step as pressuring the tool to force the government to redistribute the oil if it is so large or the government on a show called in on the country says that the goal to all libyan people and now we're getting here news from the sales of libya that to measure the oil fields have been also blocked by. protesters in the south of the country and this is going to cause a dramatic drastically decrees in the oil revenues which are the backbone of
9:20 pm
libya's national income fully ok mahmoud thank you very much for that update mom would have done well had live for us in tripoli now the 50th world economic forum is getting under way and climate is top of the agenda to my they now for more from my european broadcast santa maria. yeah that's right it might be the 50th anniversary but the mood is unlikely to be a celebratory one given the gravity of the problems and challenges the world will try to tackle in the picturesque swiss mountains and ahead of opening speeches there's already been a stark warning from the international monetary fund calling for urgent action after it was revealed that for the 1st time environmental concerns are dominating the top 5 long term global risks for business leaders investors and policymakers the i.m.f. chief economist also called for more multilateral cooperation and also issued a warning about trade wars the countries need to cooperate in multifold frons to
9:21 pm
raise growth and spread prosperity the need to reverse protectionist trade measures a result of the impasse over the world trade organizations appellate court they must adopt strategies to limit the rise in temperatures of the severe consequences the weather related natural disasters the new international taxation regime is needed to adapt to the growing digital economy and to curtail tax avoidance and evasion while ensuring that all countries receive their fair share of tax revenues . meanwhile hundreds of climate activists marching across witsel and to davos to demand that world leaders do more to tackle climate change the activists is spent 3 days marching from in the swiss alps to the alpine village security in davos is obviously been beefed up as it is every year ahead of their arrival with $5000.00 troops placed on standby demonstrators argue those attending the summit a largely responsible for the climate crisis and they are demanding that companies
9:22 pm
immediately invest away from fossil fuels and that the world economy be restructured to better protect the planet. well i'm joined now in the studio by andrew scott he's director of the climate and energy program at the overseas development institute so obviously you will be watching very closely and we know that it's taking place this year against the backdrop of bushfires hurricanes and rising sea levels is it your feeling that the participants at the world economic forum really grasp the extent of this crisis i think the governments and business leaders at davos know what needs to be done. but i'm not sure that. their discussions at davos will lead to any meaningful change in any of that the environment climate risks of being in the top list of risks with the world economic forum's a new review for several years ago. but emissions keep going up so the extent to
9:23 pm
which davos is making much difference is is questionable i think the real question is whether even whether davos could enable change to take place at the rate but it is necessary to avoid catastrophic climate change given that this is all taking place so we've had very dramatic climate events do you think that we might have reached a tipping point in terms of what investors businesses and governments are prepared to do you know we see these dramatic pictures from australia and from other parts of the world as well could we see a greater commitment to more stringent emissions targets. i think governments are are being asked to increase the a mission for the u n f triple c. conference at the end of this year many businesses and governments have already made strong commitments but we're still not seeing the reduction in emissions why
9:24 pm
is that i think it's partly because governments need to set the right policy frameworks in place the right tuxes regulations standards to incentivize businesses many businesses do some do take action without government control microsoft for instance recently announced they were going to go carbon negative but many others require governments to take the action to increase. the the emission emission reductions and incentivize companies to take those actions there are many things companies can do in their supply chains to reduce their own emissions to do reduce their suppliers emissions they also need to make value chains more climate resilient resilient to the. fires and floods it is a little there's a great deal to be done we know that businesses in the c.e.o.'s of these not large multi not natural multinational corporations will be attending the world economic forum is going to be a key part of all of this the most and really the most anticipated session is going
9:25 pm
to be president donald trump who will give an address what are your expectations i'm really not sure what president trump is likely to say but the phrase climate change would be no most phrase normal grafter within the american government for the last 3 years so whether there's going to be a substantial change of heart or i really don't know one thing the flu donald trump could do is actually remove his room withdrawal from the paris agreement and have the u.s. continue to support the piracy agreement. so possibly a reversal of that position would be the 1st time that we've seen him do that thank you very much andrew scott your thoughts on the story and to coincide with the summit in davos oxfam has released research which suggests a vast amount of the world's wealth is in the hands of just a few people or a poor confirming that there are just over $2000.20 billionaires and they own more wealth than 60 percent of the world's population around
9:26 pm
$4600000000.00 other people the report has a special focus on unpaid work by women and girls and says they put in more than 12000000000 hours of unpaid work a day often as family care as. well max lawson is head of policy on inequality at oxfam and says that globally distributed listening to ordinary people and not 1000000000 as in davus. i think we're looking at 2 crises in this so closely and that's what the message that we want to get across today that you have across is an economic inequality would be tiny group of people just 2000 people honing more wealth than the bottom 4600000000 so there's incredible amounts of money in this secret swiss bank accounts a 1000000000 but then also drawing attention to the past where our economy is sexist so the majority of these britain has a man the majority of them are white and their wealth is built on the backs of
9:27 pm
hundreds of millions of the poorest women who are working long hours for barry lopez sometimes not for any potable and that this sexist economy is feuding the inequality that we see in the world today of every billionaire is a policy failure by governments we don't need to have billionaires we should have a much fairer world where wealth is more fairly distributed governments can implement much better taxation for instance we have a situation where billionaires in some countries are paying lower taxes than the working close and so there are lots of things that can be done to fix inequality as being better in the past and it could be better in the future so a clear message for us today is that inequality is a choice and it's the choice of leaders and the choosing to listen to billionaires in davos is that of listening to ordinary people protesting on the streets just a couple other stories we're following frances to send an extra 220 trips to fight . president emanuel macron said he had agreed to create a joint command structure with states to fight the guy insurgency there speaking

9:37 pm
what concerns me is that. right. to fixing your furniture was in the documents it's in relation to the foot developments what says that you did force the election of local angolans from from that it was a moment that you were building on what i well know showing i wonder. well it thaws that's what i'm saying there was no line of action and it's fast and yes a.j. received our intermediation we clearly stated that the route that they're talking about was going to be built in the water so the war it's like it's a reclaimed project you have to clean land from the sea ok so in let's look at another i guess i know what it was expected so this is the problem the end here and you have refused all right this is what worries me refused to put to good in their report i responds i less now speak to ricardo acosta who is the publisher of the espresso weekly newspaper in court portugal and part of the consortium of investigative journalist his live from lisbon thank you so much for speaking to us

15 percent of the g.d.p. of the country for 90 percent of the exports when she went to the top of the facade and all she decided to have a difficult structure with all these consultancy companies you know lawyers and she created an offshore empire and she you know she. rooted huge amounts of money is mainly to do by ok so obviously the accusations are not new against is about a sentence what i want to find out more from you is you know these documents that you've reviewed a trove of documents where did they come from they were reviewed by the i.c.i. j 771-5000 financial and business records emails charts and or stand she said in our interview with us at the documents were given to you by a very small paris outfit for people and that in fact there's nothing in them that
9:40 pm
points to the allegations made against or how well the documents that you received reviewed and what sort of investigative work was carried out to make sure that the allegations made in them were not indeed fault as she claims. i think there are allegations allegations of his about the census they are mainly part of a p.r. movement she made on the last 3 weeks with i think 7 or 8 interviews to portuguese media and international media. and she it was a kind of a preventive movement because she knew that was releasing on these sending all these investigative reports based on 'd this trove of documents they were the one other than 20 journalists were working for the last 6 months but these documents were viewed and reviewed by all these journalists they were studied all the questions were posed to us and all the news that came out from yesterday very kind of the arguments over the line of the documents team.
9:41 pm
